    Assuming there is probable cause…

    … is it worse for the country if Trump is indicted, or if he is not?

    Gotta hand it to Trump...

    ... when one thinks of what we have been treated to in his public political life: - Central Park Five ads, i.e., lynch mob rhetoric against youths who were later cleared - Birtherism and Obama: "my people can't believe what they are finding in Hawaii" (never revealed) - Announcing he is...

    Someone explain this to me

    Just saw a montage on liberal MSNBC of one politician and commentator after another saying that what the FBI and DOJ did was like the actions of the Gestapo, the Stasi and other agents of tyranny. Here’s what happened. The president took stuff he apparently wasn’t supposed to. The government...

    The Grift that Keeps on Grifting...

    ... Why are we not surprised? Trump has already raised millions off the Mar-a-Lago visit. Amazing. The High Priest of Hustle, the Duke of Duplicity, the First Among Fraudsters. We are not worthy, O Donald. There is obviously more than one sucker born every minute...

    More blood on Trump’s hands

    For some reason this got to me. A 44-year old man shot and killed by law enforcement after trying to break into FBI HQ in Cincinnati. He apparently was involved in Jan 6 events. No, Trump is not guilty here, but if he had one, this should be on Donald’s conscience. If Trump had faced his...

    Why did Trump tear up documents?

    I assume we all accept that Trump took home documents and then tore them up, flushed them, whatever. I am looking for opinions on why Trump did this, opinions from those who support or oppose him. Do you think this action was 1- Trump not caring about rules or conventions, in his mind assuming...

    What does the right stand fit these days?

    I was reading an article about GOP Senate nominee in AZ Blake Masters. The NYTimes quoted copy for one of his ads from several months ago where he is depicted holding a weapon: “This is a short barreled rifle. It wasn’t designed for hunting. This is designed to kill people.” It quotes him as...

    Our Great National Parks

    Guys and gals, there is a series on Netflix, the title of this post, that I recommend to my DP colleagues, allies, and adversaries. It is six parts, and wifey and I have seen three. It has magnificent photography, and is fascinating. It’s narrated by Obama, so if that is a problem, put your TV...

    What motivates Trump to make election fraud accusations?

    I posed this question within a long response on some topic. Couldn’t figure out how to do the “poll thing” on DP, so will simply ask pro and anti-Trump people and those in the middle to respond to this post. 1-Does Trump really think so many elections were fraudulent or rigged? 2- Are his...

    What if Pence had done what Trump asked?

    Forgive if this repeats what someone else has asked, but I'd be interested in people's views on what might have happened if Mike Pence had done what Trump suggested, and/or if new slates of electors had been named, if Georgia had "found" the votes Trump asked for, etc. There no doubt would...

    Trump and Pulitzer

    Just read that Trump was threatening to sue the Pulitzer people for having awarded prizes for their Russia coverage. Reading the details of his allegations vs reality, I assume he wouldn’t do it as it might expose him to further ridicule, but I suppose he is bitter that he didn’t get a Pulitzer...

    Trump and elections, why…

    What do people think is the reason Trump consistently claims elections were rigged? It’s it: - They have actually been rigged all the times he claimed - After the first one actually WAS rigged, he assumed his enemies plotted to continue the practice - His ego won’t allow him to admit he loses...

    Tucker Carlson's "The End of Men"

    I have only seen the trailer's for the film, but I have this question: I don't like Tucker at all. His borderline racist anti-immigrant posture is disgusting and ahistorical. He gives wealthy, entitled jerks a bad name. Still, this is not a dumb guy. For those of you who have seen the...

    What worries you most about the other side?

    Just for shits and giggles, 1- what do you liberals and conservatives fear about the opposing political side? 2- what do you see as their main error of analysis or policy tendencies in domestic politics? 3- in international politics? 4- what problems or flaws are common to both sides? As the...

    Easter story

    Heard this a conference of priests and ministers many years ago. The question was how did the Cardinals manage to elect a non-Italian Pope after hundreds of years. It seems the Cardinals didn't want to go through a big election just months after the short time of John Paul I. So they decided...

    How does it start?

    “God made everyone alive, A liberal or conservative.” Above is a saying I saw some time ago, that’s supposed to rhyme but doesn’t. Aside from whatever mischief the Creator was up to, what do folks think makes us Americans lean left or right?: parents, schools, neighborhood, state?

    [W: 111] Charlton Heston was right

    Here follows a quasi-hysterical rant. There is a photo and story in my local paper, the SF Chronicle, today. "Putin stirs nuclear war fears with alert," says the front page headline. Inside, the story continues with a photo and an account of medics trying in vain to revive a 6-year old girl...

    Gotta love Trump

    So the latest is that Trump violated the law by taking government documents home and tearing them up. Why are we not surprised? He comes into office with a record of fraud (University, Foundation), a big lie about Obama, pays for a lynch mob ad about the innocent Central Park Five, issues...
